Band of Gamers Newscast: Episode #86.5 - Activision Earnings, Darksiders 3, and Amazon Games Sale
This podcast is about games and gaming news, and this episode kicks things off with Activision's Quarterly earnings. Salivating yet? No? No worries, we'll keep it short. Like around 30 minutes, because we know you want to get your weekend started. We'll have you in, briefed up on the week's gaming news, and out in less time than it would take you to write the first page of your memoir. Wait. What? Disregard. Non-Sequiter. Moving On.
